Chris Abraham tackles Chekhov's masterpiece of desire, longing and ambition
A play about the cruelty of love - a story about how we create stories - and about the heartbreakingly wide expanse between the life we live and the life we long for. Chekhov’s The Seagull was a spectacular failure when it premiered in 1895, but has survived to become one of the masterpieces of the modern era. Starring Yanna McIntosh, Eric Peterson, Tom Rooney and Bahia Watson, Crow’s Theatre’s award-winning director Chris Abraham will bring to life this astonishingly contemporary play about a family at the end of era, facing an uncertain future. Following 2013’s Someone Else and Winners and Losers, Crow’s Theatre presents another powerful production at the Berkeley Street Theatre.
